Nina Kraviz dominated the festival circuit in 2018, performing more than any other DJ at events across the world.
According to ticketing website Festicket, the Russian techno star played more festivals than any other DJ in 2018, racking up 35 festival performances — no wonder she made our Top 100 list. Amelie Lens followed with 27 shows, which is a testament to her incredible rise. In 2017 the Belgian star only played four.
Trance king Armin Van Buuren and Charlotte de Witte — who just smashed Ultra — also made the list, playing 26 and 24 festivals respectively. While bands like the Killers, who played 18 gigs, and Arctic Monkeys, playing 16, took the top spots on Festicket’s list for non-electronic acts.
Kraviz made regular appearances at events like Time Warp, Tomorrowland, Maximum Pressure and Junction 2 last year. And she’s set for another huge summer, with her new AV show set to debut at Coachella, Kappa Futur Festival, Awakenings, and Dimensions already lined up.
